Fireplace fun – how to enjoy warmth without danger!

Fireplace fun – how to enjoy warmth without danger!

I recently went to NZ for my Dad’s ‘big birthday’ – which one? hey he and his pals don’t look or act their age, so why should I spill the beans?

Suffice to say all of us, family and friends had fun at many events, especially at the dinner organised by his ‘Dance Group’ friends.

Valentine? Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve But Hide The Chocolate In The Fridge!

Valentine? Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve But Hide The Chocolate In The Fridge!

“Roses are red, violets are blue... Skip the chocolate and roses…buy me catnip or liver instead!”

Okay – here at VETtalk TV, we really love romance and Valentines Day…we just know that right around the world, there are Vets and nurses gearing up to spend a less than fun-filled time, cleaning up vomit and poos…

Of course nobody in their right mind would feed a pet chocolate these days, unless they’re the modern day equivalent of Tom Hanks in ‘Castaway’ (i.e. no access to any information whatsoever) because everyone knows chocolate contains Theobromine which is poisonous for pets… and the darker the chocolate the more dangerous.

New Year's Eve... A 'Disaster' For Aussie Dogs + Increase In Stolen Dogs

New Year's Eve... A 'Disaster' For Aussie Dogs + Increase In Stolen Dogs

Did your pet survive New Year’s Eve fireworks without escaping?
You’re definitely one of the lucky ones.

Our friends at Pet Search, Australia’s longest running and best lost pet locators were horrified to receive 100% more calls about missing pets from around Australia on NYE 2016/2017 than at the same time last year.

To hear possible reasons why and what to do/not do to keep your pets safe – check out our podcast chat with chief dog detective Lee Jefferies

But New Year’s shenanigans aren’t the only threat to your pet’s safety – as Lee Jefferies explains in this guest blog especially prepared for VETtalk TV.com

Food Poisoning – Time To Rule Out The 5 Second Rule!

Food Poisoning – Time To Rule Out The 5 Second Rule!

It’s Australian Food Safety Week 8 to 15 November 2015 and while it’s aimed at keeping people safe, we think our companion animals deserve to be provided with bacteria-free food too.

The theme for this year’s event is ‘Did you know?’ which is all about busting food safety myths and there’s a fun Quiz you can take to see if you really know the true causes of those agonizing cramps that sent you running to the loo!

For the record, if a food is too old or ‘suspect’ for a human to eat then it’s definitely not ok to feed it to the dog – despite their apparent love of chewing previously buried bones without ill effect.

To whet your appetite (sorry) here’s a sample of the food safety questions AND their answers:

Sleep Interruptions Probably Worse Than Lack Of Sleep!

Sleep Interruptions Probably Worse Than Lack Of Sleep!

Do you sleep with your pet? Research shows vast numbers of us do and we laugh off the idea that their shifting, shaking, scratching and middle-of-the-night-toileting might have any effect on us.

But we shouldn’t.

Ticks – How To Tame Oz’s Worst Killer  

Ticks – How To Tame Oz’s Worst Killer  

It's a weird looking insect and you could be forgiven for thinking it doesn’t look in the least bit scary.  

A tiny dot half the size of your little finger-nail with 6 teensy legs near its head. To be honest - it’s highly unlikely Hollywood would ever consider making a block-buster with the title "Tick Dundee” or “Tickman” or “Teenage Mutant Ninja Ticks”.

Which is a pity because when it comes to killer Aussie predators…the Paralysis Tick is right up there alongside our poisonous snakes and killer spiders.
